Computer modelling of the heart has reached the level where it can be used to assist with the design of medical devices and help understand pharmaceutical effects at the organ level. This has come about through advanced characterization of cardiac cell behaviour, development of math- ematical techniques, and increases in computational power.
This workshop will demonstrate the use of simulations in solving cardiac electro-mechanical problems. The software package CARP, will be featured. Users and developers will be brought together to establish a roadmap for future development. Such interaction will ensure that the simulator continues to grow and meet the needs of the market


More details on the CARP simulator are found here.
